Hyundai Azera Audio and Entertainment

I bought Azera Limited, premium.
Do you know how to use speed sensing speaker volume control?
I tried to find the information in the manual book, but I couldn't find that. :confuse:

    I think that feature is fully automatic requiring no driver input. It was on my ES300. I get a kick out of the rain sensing wipers.

    Well 135 days in AZ with no rain so the rain sensing wipers doesn't do me much good here! :P

    What is "speed sensing speaker volume control"?

    It may have something to do with drugs, but I'm not entirely sure.
    .
    .
    .
    Or. . .

    Maybe when road noise (speed) increases the db level (volume) automatically adjusts higher to compensate and keep the volume at the same "hearing" level as it was at lower speeds. Actually, this makes more sense. When I drive my current car, I always have to increase the volume as the car increases in speed because of road noise. I guess this will be done "automatically" in the Azera.

    It is my understanding that the audio system has been calibrated based on the expected road noise levels at increasing speeds and that the sound automatically increases based on those expected increasing noise levels such that the volume stays proportionately the same (in other words...it makes it louder as you go faster, but you don't realize it because the louder sound is offset by louder noise levels of other things.)

    There is no control over it; it just happens.

    Sounds true enough...just makes me wonder why if we have that we also have to have a button on the steering wheel too.. isn't that a little bit of "overkill"? Gee, I remember when you had to reach over and turn the volume up on the radio knobs...and still couldn't make it loud enough to overcome the various noises of road traveling....of course that was also before A/C so the windows were down adding to the mix..hmmmmm the good ol' days... may they stay gone forever. ;) ;)

    Oh I don't know about that. Even in the hot humid midwest summers I rarely use A/C. I love having the windows down and fresh air rushing into the car, even if it is well into the 90's.

    The sign said "No shoes, no shirt, no service", it didn't say anything about no pants.

    I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car and I can't say that I have to turn up my radio when going 85mph because there is really no noise.

    Is it possible to pause a CD or MP3 track? I know you can mute the sound, but the tracks keep playing (silently.)

    Thanks.

    Can anyone please give mesome advice on getting the Infinity Head Unit out of the dash?

    The reason being...I need to fit an inline FM Transmitter to the rear of the head unit.

    The FM TX is for my Harmon Kardon Drive'n'play ipod thingy.

    Thanks,

    Nigel

    Hi,

    Can someone please give me some assistance in removing the Infinity Head Unit from the dash, so I can access the rear of the unit.

    Thanks, Nigel

    If you get that information, kindly pass it on. I would like to be able to plug my Ipod into input jack.
  • Is anyone aware if the Infiniti Audio sysyem has an input jack located on the back ( or front) of the head into which one can plug in an IPOD cable?
    If so, what is the cost of installing such an input cable, and how does it work?
    I still can't get any info from Hyundai about upgrading steering wheel audio controller to 2007 model. They keep sending me from Customer Affairs dept. to Dealer part dept.
    The same applises to tire pressure monitor system and lighted side view mirrors.
    I wish they would get their act together.
  • I'm still trying to get the Infinity Head Unit out of the dash to have a look....does anyone have any suggestions. :confuse: :confuse:
    I have a Hardon Karmon iPod drive'n'play system I want to install...therefore the need to remove the Head Unit to conect the iPod input.
  • If you go to the Hyundai service URL as described in message 3249 you can get removal instructions by following: Shop/Body Electrical/Audio System/Audio Unit/Replacement. There are diagrams. The verbal part for removal is:
    1. Disconnect negative battery terminal.
    2. Remove crash pad center garnish. (Refer to Body Group-Crash Pad).
    3.Remove the center fascia panel (A) after loosening screws. Avoid damaging retaining clips.
    4. Remove connectors of digital clock and hazard switch.
    5. Remove mounting screws then remove audio unit(B).

    This may be a fruitless endeavor because the rear of the unit does not appear to have an audio input jack. Apart from the RF coax connector all connections are made via a 24 pin connector. I'm not familiar with HK iPod unit. You'll need to look at the pin-out under ----/Audio Unit/Component to determine if the HK unit can be interfaced via the 24 pin connector or the coax input.
  • Thank you so very much for the info. The HK iPod connector is an inline FM connector, so I should be OK. Thanks again.
  • After 3 hours I fially got the iPod system fitted.
    Removing the Audio Unit was easy....and NO Audio inputs...just the FM input.
    The iPod system has no visible wiring.
    The LCD Display in on the dash and the "clickwheel" controller is easy to hand on the console.
    The iPod hides in the small compartment below the heater.
    :) :) :) :)
  • I am 3 weeks into my new Azera and love it. As some others have commented the mode button taking the place of a button that can page thru stations is a little annoying. Has anyone spoken to Hyundai to see if this can be reprogramed to fix this nusiance?
  • Hyundai customer affairs has vacilated on this question.
    I was informed by one tech that an upgrade kit was available to change switch and wire harness. Another could find no company information to verify this. The dealer service and parts department were ubable to find out any information.
  • If the tech said there was an upgrade kit available did he produce the good? I would think it is a simple computer reprograming issue. Thanks for responding!
  • I still am unable to get definite information about upgrading 2006 steering wheel audio control to new 2007 system.
    Button configuration is the same size. No one seems to know if wire connector must be changed to permit additional features or if there exists additional non used wires in 2006 harness.
    If anyone can get better information, kindly pass it along.
  • Just what does this kit cost, how long does the install take, and exactly what are the benefits over the existing setup? Does this not require a new steering wheel, so there are different buttons, or is just the outer "pad", where the buttons are, replaced?

    The one thing which I find disappointing, is the inability to place the CD player full "random" mode, and thus play ALL discs in random mode, switching from one disc to another, and not just the one currently in play. On my Avalon ('95), with a 12 CD changer in the trunk, I can do this. It is a much superior system, in my opinion...
  • I am not sure how much it will cost in America, but it's about 13~14 bucks in Korea, take around 30 min. or less to install it.

    Follow below Link if you can. (Unfortunately, it's all korean.)

    http://imagesearch.naver.com/search.naver?where=idetail&query=2007%B3%E2%C7%FC%2- 0%B1%D7%B7%A3%C0%FAtg&a=bli&r=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fblog.naver.com%2F55da.do%3FRedire- ct%3DLog%26logNo%3D60027734532

    It explains the new update for 2007 Grandeur TG in Korea, it has lots of better options than Azera, and you can see one image which has this new audio control kit in 2007 model.
    You don't need to change steering wheel, just change left-side control kit with current steering wheel.
    I didn't install it, so I can't tell you how it works. But it's possible to change track up/down at least.
    And I don't think it allows to use random mode which you mentioned.
  • Local US Hyundai dealer called Hyundai US parts depot.
    They claim that the wire harness must be changed to accomodate 2007 switch features. Big job.
    They also claim that they were informed by Hyundai US parts department that doing so would void the part of warranty dealing with steering wheel and audio system.

    If anyone has found this information to be incorrect, please post.
  • If Hyundai US parts depot has correct information, it seems there is no way to have the audio(seek) control feature with cheap and easy DIY.

    Anyway, my friend will bring 2007 seek control kit in the end of next month and I am gonna replace it as soon as I I get it. Every work is under my responsibility!!!

    One more info...this replacement only allows to change track up and down, not disk up/dn. (2007 model has smart seek control feature which is capable to change both of them and more funtions.)
  • Does that mean that the radio is a different model in the 2007? If not why can't the entire control be updated to 2007 features?
  • I am pretty sure the radio is same in 2007 Azera.
    My saying means it's possible to change only the left-side volume control kit with updated 2007 one in 2005/2006 Grandeur TG(it's korean name of Azera). And I read many posts, lots of Grandeur TG Owners already changed it and it works well. But I am told this modification allows to change track up/dn, not change cd up/dn...(2007 Model can do both of these funtions with push the button short/long...I guess we need to do another wire harness or something else if we can use same funtion of 2007 model)

    I am a little bit worried after reading your post about wire harness job and warranty. But it looks same radio both Azera and Grandeur TG, hmm...need to check again...
  • Thanks for reply!
    If anyone is able to get any more information, kindly post.
    According to Hyundai US, even installing a hard wired radar detector, such as the K40 undetectable, voids the electrical portion of the warranty.
    Perhaps some Hyundai owner lawyer can give their legal position, regarding this stated position by the company.

    The random all function works great if you're playing a disc loaded with MP3's. If you have them placed in folders, each folder is treated like a disc and it will shuffle through all of them on the disc. I currently have one disc in mine with about 12 hours of music on it. It would be nice if the random feature stayed on even after you've cut the car off and back on...might not hear a song twice for quite some time! *grin* Oh well...won't be worrying about it much longer...I'm getting rid of the factory radio.
  • allmet33allmet33 Posts: 3,557
    If you are looking to replace the factory radio in your Azera, you will need a wire harness. If you have the Infinity stereo system, you will need a particular harness and right now, Scosche is the only one that has it available. You can call the company (800-363-4490 ext 1)
    to order part #HY-08. Total cost for me (with shipping) was $17.95.

    If you happen to have the Azera without the Infinity system, you would order part #HY-07.
